Start your Bali cocktail adventure with a journey through the rice fields of West Coast Bali until we arrive at a small, remote club on the dramatic Echo Surf Beach, where monster waves roll in when the surf is high. Our destination is like a set from a ship wreck on a desert island, with eclectic decorations around the pools and stunning ocean views.
The menu is tapas style and the drinks chill are first-class; chilli, lemongrass and lychee martini anyone?!
We’ll jump back into our retro, pimped out 1980 Kombi to travel through some of the area’s nearby beach villages towards the stunning 17th-century temple of Pura Batu Ngaus, a fertility temple perched on a rock in the ocean. The Balinese come here to seek medicine or fertility blessings from the mangku (priest), and leave offerings in a most unusual way: in a blowhole in the rock that connects to the ocean via an underwater cave. This temple is far off the tourist track, feeling a world away from the crowds that swarm Bali’s more famous sites. Along the way to Pura Batu Ngaus, you’ll pass typically Bali-esque scenes of government-protected rice terraces and catch glimpses of the sea and the far-off cliffs of Uluwatu — keep your camera close by for those classic Bali shots!
Thirsty again? And hungry too? Good! Because up next, your Bali tour will take you to what we like to call the living museum, a place steeped in history but also boasting the best roof top bars with ocean views you will find in Bali.
Enjoy a classic nasi goreng with our favourite cocktail, a gin & tonic, while lazing about in the late afternoon sun.
Next, we head further down the West coast, chasing the setting sun, winding in and out of small villages until we arrive at the eclectic gypsy camp, complete with tarot readers and caravans perched on Berawa surf beach. Sangria or homemade bloody marys are definitely the drink of choice in this funky place!
Finish your Bali tour with a nightcap at the iconic Ku De Ta bar at Seminyak Beach, a long-standing hot spot that’s considered to be one of the best beach clubs in Southeast Asia. We recommend the espresso martini — perfect for revving you up for a night out on the town after your tour ends!
Inclusions: Local English-speaking guide, trained driver, fuel, mineral water, and temple entrance.
Exclusions: Drinks and meals at bars and restaurants
Dress standard: All bars on the itinerary, as well as the temple, require visitors to wear shirts with sleeves. Also, under Balinese Hindu beliefs, women who are menstruating are not permitted inside the temple, and your guide may ask you if you are currently in this part of your cycle. Please note that this is an accepted question in Balinese society and is not intended as a slight against women, but rather part of the ancient belief that no blood may be spilled in the temple. However, you may walk around the outside of the temple and look in. At Pura Batu Ngaus, there is a pathway from which you can view the inside of the temple, as well as a huge rock formation that overlooks the coastline and offers the best views of anywhere in or around the temple. Please use your own discretion as to whether you should enter the temple grounds.
